Accessible kitchen

Accessible kitchen with adjustable height work surfaces and wall-mounted cabinets – suitable for wheelchair users

Description
The height of the counters along the wall and in the corner can be adjusted. There is a sink and stove with ceramic cooktop. The cabinet above the sink can be lowered diagonally.

Authors comments
When the user was injured the kitchen was newly built. The family tried to keep as much as possible of the furnishings. In order to keep the existing window above the sink, an upper cabinet was chosen that can be lowered diagonally, i.e., both downwards and outwards. The user does not lower the upper cabinet very often since she feels this is inconvenient and slow. She can reach the lowest shelf.
